Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation Online Course
A lot of people who are interested in exploring online Dharma do so because they don’t have a center near them or can’t get to one. Also, people who suffer from anxiety and depression – people who might be greatly helped by Buddhist practice – may not go to a Buddhist center for a course.
One great offering I’ve found is an online mindfulness meditation course offered by Gil Fronsdal and Ines Freedman. Starting on July 14, the course will cover the basics of mindfulness, including a beginning meditation schedule and online talks. I’m already registered and I’m excited to get started. The teachers are using a Google group to communicate with students. I think this is an excellent example of teachers stepping it up to use new media to reach out to those who are eager and interested to learn about the Dharma.
If you decided to register for this free course (dana is accepted for the teachers), leave me a comment and let me know.
